First, I finished my OMG - One Monthly Goal for August and am linking up to Elm Street Quilts and the August finish party. My goal was to complete the Firefighters Quilt this month, and OMG helped motivate me to get 'er done! Here is the finished quilt, which measures 44x56".
I had to add a Red Cross (get it?) to the back because I didn't buy enough of the firefighter backing.
And this shot shows a little of the free-form flame quilting I did, which was a first for me (as you can probably tell, LOL!). Nothing ventured, nothing gained...
Finally, I have my recap of Rainbow Scrap Challenge sewing for August. The color this month is/was light to medium (and bright) blues.
If you want to see more blue scrappy sewing goodness, hop over to Angela's So Scrappy blog for Scrappy Saturday. I'm looking forward to just chilling in my chair with a cup of coffee and checking out all the fun sewing that's been going on in August.
And speaking of chilling in a chair, here is another picture of Bruce with his trusty sidekick Alfalfa. Alfie is the self-appointed morale officer.
